I don't agree with that.  If you want to write a server in ObjC using
GNUstep, but for constraints outside your control you have to have it in
the standard unix hierarchy (we don't always control our customers or our
managers), you want to be able to do it.  Why should I give up all the
good that it's in GNUstep just because I have a requirement to deploy the
server in standard unix locations.  Also because as soon as the constrains
go away I can just change a couple of ./configure switches in gnustep-make
and have the same software install in the GNUstep filesystem hierarchy
without any change to my server.

I can't see why forcing people to use GNOME or KDE when they could be
using GNUstep is any good.

What I don't understand is why should you or any developer be forced to put a GNUstep based server in a standard un*x location? One writes a GNUstep-based server and one thus needs the entire GNUstep environment (in the case of a server atleast -make and -base). So it could just live within the GNUstep environment with e.g. just a init-script to start and stop the so clearly written server.

What am I missing?


You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
